What is a “healthy community”? What successful strategies are communities using to collaborate across sectors to promote healthy people and strong economies? What are the opportunities for strengthening the interdependence between urban and rural economies? How are banks, CDFIs, philanthropy, and others investing to foster equitable access and regional prosperity for all? Why is investing in environmental sustainability important and wise for people and places?
This daylong conference, co-sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Incourage, will share leading practices in healthy economic development, sustainability and investment, with a special focus on rural and urban approaches to move from ideas to action. The conference will also include strategies for ongoing collaborative work with a new administration in 2017.
